History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable" and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.
Care Tips for Swiss Army Knives
The various tools are manufactured from high-quality steel with precisely tuned features that are essential for the particular application. The steel is tempered, annealed and polished to achieve the necessary hardness and provide optimum resistance to corrosion.
To re-sharpen your knife, use a whetstone at an angle of 15°– 20°. This will result in a cutting angle of 30°– 40°. If sharpening on a grinding wheel, always cool with plenty of water to avoid excessive temperatures and the resulting damages that may occur.
After you’ve used your Swiss Army Knife for all of its various applications, such as cutting open numerous boxes, you may notice that the blades begin to stick together. Opening and closing the blades in warm water several times will allow the tools to easily move again. Once they have dried, it is recommended, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the spring. To optimally maintain the locking mechanism, periodically apply a drop of our recommended Swiss Army Knife Oil. Never put Swiss Army Knives in the dishwasher.

It's nice to have a knife that has more than a blade. While not a "tactical" blade - it is serrated, but has a short flat cutting area. It's less intimidating in most public usage. The blade does lock in place for challenging tasks. It a line locker. The opening mechanism is a Spyderco type thumb hole.
The seat belt cutter serrated and curved. It not a sharp knife-edge hook like most rescue tools. The tip of the seatbelt cutter is rounded so it can slide between the belt and and clothing. I had originally though it was a two hands to open tool, but the rounded tip of the knoife protrudes slightly. So you can catch it on an edge, clothing or door/window frame and open it with one hand. Vital.
Other tools include (beyond the long blade, seat-belt cutter):
- Window breaker and if you wear it out, it can be replaced.
- Glass disc saw for shatterproof glass. Can open with one hand, but more difficult that the seat belt cutter to open. Does not lock open. can also replace it if it wears out (a lot of windows).
- Strong straight-edge screwdriver / crate opener with- cap lifter/bottle opener. It also has a lock in place mechanism.
- Phillips screwdriver - beefy. Does not lock in place. Could be used as a defensive tool between the fingers while holding the knife body in a closed fist.
- Reamer, punch
- Wire Stripper
- key ring with nylon cord lanyard
- nylon pouch
To really see it in action, see the YouTube video ( watch?v=zApUSw0xsRY Amazon does not allow links but you know what to put in front of it!!) or the same video on the Victorinox (Swissarmy) website.
- The Swiss Rescue colors make the knife easy to find in emergencies.
- Great quality sharp and long knife blade
- Saw and seatbelt cutter can be used for cutting all kinds of materials besides shatterproof glass
- Includes the classic bottle opener/ flathead screwdriver tool
- Great combination if trapped in a vehicle, or helping others trapped
- Otherwise great urban survival tool
- Reamer and Philips screwdriver positioning makes it difficult or impossible to use in tight spaces; wish both could be positioned at either end of the tool
- Lanyard attachment very short, so can be impractical when needing a longer attachment application in the field (being super nitpicky here)
- Quite a bit pricier than other comparable Victorinox knife/ multitools such as the Swiss Army Hunter XT Knife, with relatively few number of additional functions
Very well designed and solidly constructed. A nice change from China made junk. I initially got it to keep in my car for emergencies. But having had it for some time I feel it is also perfect for road trips and camping. It has all the needed essentials: a sharp blade, a belt cutter that can easily slice through ropes, a saw, a bottle opener that doubles as a screwdriver, wire stripper, and a crate/box opener, and a philips screwdriver. It is a little heavy and big but as my hands are a little larger than average the size and weight feel perfect for job though for some people it may not be as comfortable.
The reason I gave it 4 stars is the liner lock. I feel it is a little dangerous and one needs to be careful when closing the blade. As you push the lock spring your finger is in the blade path. So in a hurry you may injure yourself. I'd much prefer a lockback design.
I must say that I also keep a Benchmade Pro- Houdini rescue tool in the car for emergencies. The Benchmade one is strickly for emergencies, it is a completely different design which I feel is good. If I am not able to use one I will use the other.
